"Here is an example by one of our members, showing those buttonholed bars."

May replied to May's discussion Continuous Outline? in the group Beginners Needle Lace
"Can I also ask, what would be a relatively sturdy ground/bars to help keep everything in place? I was looking at the bars in your link, Lorelei, and I wasn't sure if I'd be better off using the traditional three threads with buttonholes…"
